Why Study Music?

Why Study Music?

If you have ever considered studying music, or maybe the thought has simply crossed your mind, here are some reasons that maybe you should enroll in a music program today:

  • Broad range of skills; music is so much more than playing a piano. Music teaches transferable and applicable skills but also requires math and analytical thinking in some contexts as well. A degree in music covers so many subjects and teaches so many skills.
  • Supply and demand; professionals in the music world and especially in certain fields are in high demand as music hasĀ been somewhat of a declining industry in terms of teachers, producers, therapists etc. for a variety of reasons.
  • Music is more entrepreneurial than you may thing; music requires focus, diligence, creativity and innovation, all key components to being a successful entrepreneur. As a matter of fact, many graduates from music programs end up being their own bosses.
  • Lack of passion is fatal; it is rare to find an education stream that can combine your hobbies and passions with a formal education and, eventually, a career path. Doing what you love is important for many reasons, life is short and it is great to spend your time doing things that matter to you.
